    Fahrenheit 32 and Body Kouros. Just the thought of either makes me physically ill.

    I've scrubbed off all the Byredo frags I've tried. Vigorously.

    I occasionally have to scrub Terre de Hermes if I've misjudged and am not in the mood for it.

    I noticed a lot of hate for 1 Million. I love that stuff, but I guess for some, even an ad with a hot guy to an electronic dance music soundtrack isn't enough.

    Yet my pick for scrubber hasn't been mentioned yet: Emporio Armani Diamonds for Men. Notably enough, I loved the original Emporio He back in the day, I still like Acqua di Gio, and the new Armani Code Ultimate is pretty darn good. But this was a syrupy powdery mess that I had to scrub off 20 minutes later. And even then, it wouldn't all come off.
    Top 5 for Winter:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) Back to Black - By Kilian
    3) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL
    4) Aventus - Creed
    5) John Varvatos Vintage

    Versace The Dreamer. A new and unsampled first purchase years ago that I foolishly chest-sprayed twice just before bedtime. I had fragmares, bad dreams about the frag monster, until I woke up and showered it off (as much as possible that is).

    Royal Oud, couldn't get it off fast enough, made me nausious and could feel the headache coming on.

    Spice & Wood. Though I'm gonna give this another chance. I may have put too much on, and it was overbearing. Layering might be nice. But my first go with it....phew.

    For me: Caron pour un homme...could not get it off of me fast enough. A close second would be Tauer's Star Orange. Was like acid melting away my skin and sinus cavity.

    For my wife: Guerlain's Vetiver. I put a sample on one night...and she did NOT care for it. To the point that when I started for bed a few hours later, she said, "You're not going to bed smelling like that, are you?"

    I just tested Arquiste's Anima Dulcis on Sunday, and it was too much for me. Granted, I was already feeling pretty exhausted and slightly ill, so not the best time to heavily skin test such a rich scent. I didn't scrub it though, and I'd try it again.

    The first time I scrubbed a scent was when I was at the airport and tested Guerlain Habit Rouge EDT and Chanel Antaeus at the same time (one on each wrist). It was way too much, and this was at the very start of my fragrance journey. I'm glad I didn't get on a plane without scrubbing, and actually I enjoyed the faint smell of both after I scrubbed. Now I enjoy both scents and own a bottle of vintage Habit Rouge EDC.

    I had to scrub SL Chypre Rouge, something in the heart was nauseating and gave me a headache. I found a very similar sickening accord in Molton Brown Rogart. Those two actually make me ill.

    Oud Wood (tainted). I like OW from my original. but it seems to be reacting with decant atomizer i keep at work to create a weird plastic/lipstick odor. Bought atomizer on sale now I think it was previously used and tainted my decant

    The last one was Marbert Man because I was kind of obligated to spray it on my wrist because an old couple who I respect greatly wanted me to try it.

    A non-ghetto perfume that I had to scrub off was Lipstick Rose. Yes they hit the nail right on the head as far as it smelling like lipstick and it's a brilliant creation, but I do not want to go about smelling like that.

    Iris Silver Mist. I just wasn't prepared. Not as metallic as I'd hoped, and my nose just focuses on the makeup/lipstick aspect of iris.
    Couldn't get rid of the smell so I sprayed something on top of it. Discovered that it layers really well adding a plush softness to whatever it is mixed with.

    I admire the scent, but I'm not quite ready for it.

    Habit Rouge...several times, but most recently a few days ago. I've owned 50ml for about 20 years, and periodically I try it hoping I will like it, but I doubt it will every happen. I should just pass it on since it's vintage.
